“It’s amazing really. It’s every you dream of, being a world champion. In my last year I could do it, to get the win, it’s amazing, Barry said following the victory.
“It gives me the hunger to get the head down and get the practice in and hopefully be here next year and for the next few years. What a tournament to be at. It’s amazing really.”
